the box office and a sports-themed demographic helped bill clinton win his second term. and with one month left, what can mitt romney do to win over latino voters? and coming up next, both presidential campaigns seem to be undergoing an overhaul. we'll tell you about the changes and whether they seem to be a good or not. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. ♪ [ male announcer ] jill and her mouth have lived a great life. but she has some dental issues she's not happy about. so i introduced jill to crest pro-health for life. selected for people over 50. pro-health for life is a toothpaste that defends against tender, inflamed gums, sensitivity and weak enamel. conditions people over 50 experience. crest pro-health for life. so jill can keep living the good life. crest. life opens up when you do. check out the latest collection of snacks from lean cuisine. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. boring. boring.

in and of itself. you know, we need presidents that are strong. you know, bill clinton, as critical as i was during monica lewinsky, you have to hand it to him, his ability to compartmentalize, do his job, deal with impeachment was, frankly, pretty amazing, in terms of the skill level and his ability to handle that. >> steel will. the survivor. there is no question about that. it's worth looking at. but you were on with karl scproaf it's great to hear karl rove out there again. i used to go talk to him during the bush years. he would roll out the statistics and the arguments-- >>> he's good. >> and make the case. this business of the unemployment numbers. you know, is it a trend? i have looked at that time two ways. it is no comfort to the tens of millions of people who are unemployed, under-employed or just taken themselves out of the job market. in the second thing is, i think the average viewer is sitting here, asking the question... what's the plan to fix it? what's the goal? how are we going to do this? and whether -- in our polls, in romney's case. but the other night, he made a case. he said
turning around. bill clinton gave a great speech at the convention and everyone loved what clinton said. it now turns out there was some underlying economic trends that was feeding that that we didn't really know about, but that makes sense now. and i think if that's the case heading into the critical month of october and obviously in november where we're going to have one more jobs report, i think that really does benefit the president. because that's been the underlying issue of this entire campaign. it's been the issue that mitt romney's campaigned on from the get-go. >> at the convention i think he framed obama the case for obama and particularly the case for obama on the economy more clearly than anyone else has on the campaign. >> no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. when president barack obama took office, the economy was in free fall, it had just shrunk. we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. the are we doing better today? the answer is yes. >> and we should say, we are act
immediately. barack obama. it happened with hillary clinton time and time again where hillary clinton, chris dodd, joe biden, outdebated barack obama in every single debate back in 2008. every single debate. chris dodd, joe biden, hillary clinton just ran circles around him. and people say, well, why can't he -- at some point you just have to say, because he doesn't have his -- i mean, a great of a grasp on the issues as the people he's debating. >> that's sobering but it's true. i still believe it's the professor. >> how can you be president of the united states, mark halperin, and, i mean, and not have these basic answers? >> well, it's more than i think the format than not having the answers. he spent a lot of the evening going after mitt romney for things that he thinks he can win the election on like taxes and medicare. it wasn't like he never responded to it. >> but isn't the format in washington is that you get in a room with someone and you go at it and you try and figure it out? >> that's what we're asking. has he been too isolated? listen, we talked to him. the guy is brilliant. he
, it is for the former president, bill clinton. it is simply this, get out there. get on the trail, sir. i think he's going to be out there next week. bill clinton should be out there every single day. i don't know what the dynamic is currently between him and the president -- >> it's wonderful. he's advertising for the obama campaign. >> you know what, maybe president obama needs to change debate partners. maybe he needs to go practice with bill clinton. john kerry is not cutting it. >> he should have bill clinton in his ear the whole time the explainer in chief. i think if bill clinton, i think he should probably bring big bird with him. >> didn't big bird get fired? >> big bird, get a safe house. do it now. >> the bromance lasts until november. >> my advice is for joe biden. do not try to overwhen sate by going in there charging like the bulls of pam plo na in your debate. the only thing that may be worse than an overly passive barack obama is an overly aggressive joe biden. >> a bull in a china shop maybe. >> maybe. listen, if he's hard to control when he's on script, just imagine him unscripte
think bill clinton would call this number lower, just simple arithmetic. jan schakowsky, thank you for joining me this morning. >> and happy birthday to you. >> thank you. thank you so much. we want to show you those numbers, 7.8% unemployment, the low nest nearly to yours. employers adding nearly 114,000 new jobs. the 7.8% rate is the same as when president obama took office back in january of '09. now, it claimed to 10% in october of that year before then starting to fall. last month unemployment dropping among adult men and women and also in teens, but it's still a whopping 23.7% for that last group. now, here is how we break it down. it dropped among whites, african-americans, hispanics, and asians, but unemployment among african-americans and hispanics remains well above the national average. joining me now is cbs contributor ron insana who is also host of a syndicated radio program called the market scoreboard report and with us from waution, jared bernstein, former economist for joe biden. it's good to have you here. jared, i start with you. as we look at these numbers, is t
, a partisan republican. he hated al gore because the clinton/gore administration made ge clean up the pcbs they had spewed into the hudson river. but it's unbelievable that he doesn't have the good sense to avoid this that when he says to chris matthews he has no evidence at all he simply won't back down. so i thought about this today. you know, first we had the truthers. then we had the birthers. now we need a name for these conspiracy freaks who think that the bls is jiggering the numbers and i think we ought to call them the welchers. >> is romney going to get hurt by these wild conspiracies, bob? >> yeah. i think he is. because what this conspiracy theory has done is given more currency to the actual news. the people who listen to rush limbaugh, the people on fox news, none of them are going to vote for the president anyway. they never were going to vote for him. but there's going to be more currency to the story. it's going to be a more interesting story. it's going to sink in better and i think it fits the narrative that barack obama and bill clinton at the convention have been tryin
to say under clinton we had great job growth and under bush, we had lousy. that's just him. his natural instinct to to blur the partisan differences. i think that will change in the next debate. >> you're definitely going to see a different obama in the next debate. he will go right at romney. this is going to be an entirely different debate. >> i think that's right. one of the other questions, peggy, will we see a different kind of moderation? this was a brand-new format where jim lehrer, he wanted to get out of the way and said he was effective in doing that. do you agree? >> i completely agree. i thought jim lehrer was absolutely great, and it was a relief. i didn't even know in advance that this agreement had been made that the way the moderator would moderate would be a little more laid back. this is what it was. jim lehrer is old school and a pro. he didn't think it was all about him. he didn't think it was about getting the camera on him. he didn't think it was about him being the anchor with the whip. you know what i mean? he would ask a question, and he would let these two guys
performance last night for barack obama. >> hillary clinton is running as the tough fighter, and if obama doesn't show democrats he can be a tough fighter against the republican attack machine so called but in fact it is, then, you know, democrats are going to pull back from him. >> subpar performance in the debate by senator obama and a great performance by senator clinton. >> i think they saw john mccain is the tough guy and barack obama is the cerebral guy. >> he seemed to lose control. >> john mccain clearly won this battle on points. >> so this is it every time. i actually thought that he was during the primary a subpar debater. in fact, debate after debate in which he wouldn't throw the punch and this was the big -- >> right. i think part of the issue is romney has been making so many big mistakes and has been so underperforming. a lot of us forgot he can stay say coherent things and can be good at debates and thought that president obama's campaign has been on. >> but this is where the kind of film clips that you have can be very useful because we can have pictures of romney saying
was interesting, carol simpson moderated the 1992 presidential debate, and that was when you saw bill clinton, george h.w. bush, ross perot, they were the candidates at the time, and she said the town hall style doesn't allow -- specifically she saiding for a female moderator to ask some of the tough questions because it really is just kind of passing the mike from person to person. what do you think of that, what her critique? >> i'm not sure what the -- actually i have carol's debate on a dvd in my office, and i was going from the most recent. i have seen charlie gibson, and -- this debate has -- once the table is kind of set by the town hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, hey, wait a second. what about x, y, z? you said this or you said that. you're sort of the -- they launch the discussion, and then the moderator furthers the discussions as you said this and now you say that. that kind of thing. we hope that kind of group effort can pin down both of these men on a variety of issues. >> and watching the last debate, candy, what do you take away with that in terms of how both

when bush came into office, clinton left him a $5.60 trillion surplus. bush gave it away to his billionaire buddy spirit that was 2001. i -- david which was billionaire bodies. that was 2001. in 2003, bush gave republican job creators $3.50 trillion for jobs, but we got 99 despite 2008. that is a whole year. president obama was then-senator obama -- guest: your command of the numbers is terrific. the question about the media. honest --ed, let's be you have to have a strong voices inside the democratic party and a strong voices outside in the movements of our time an independent media to call the mainstream media, and we can discuss what mainstream media means, but there is a mainstream establishment media which has as its working premise the idea of the cult of balance, something our media columnist, eric alterman, has written and what about i-- has written a lot about. if someone went on to the floor of congress and said the earth is flat, the media would write about both sides as if both were true. i mentioned norm ornstein earlier. he is no liberal progressive. he is sort of
a headline, "blame obama's lousy debate on john kerry. bring bill clinton as his debate coach." that's one person's opinion of the matter. nevertheless, no chance in that happening, but we know from what david axelrod has said and others, there will likely be a strategy change for the president in the next debate. >> no one knows why the president didn't do as well. i think that you're going to see a more focused president obama. actually, a more focused obama campaign team on preparation. this is a conversation we had about mitt romney and a lot of things he said shouldn't have been too surprising given all the republican debates we had seen over the past year or so. and president obama was caught flat-footed, his campaign was flat-footed. we'll see if the adjustments they end up making as david axelrod promised. >> what's the early word on the vice presidential debates? you have democrats off the record worried knowing that biden could give a make moment or a break moment. >> it's most watched tv. it's important to note that paul ryan has never been on this stage before. joe biden, given

know, the obama campaign, their belief in this, has been since sort of the bill clinton explanation of digging out of this hole, has been that ultimately that last sliver of swing voters is going to say, ok, let's not change horses mid stream. they are making a classic incumbent case of saying, it's not great, but, hey, do you want to start over? and i go back. i remember watching a couple of focus groups. there was one out in nevada with some working women. and one woman said, i'm not happy with obama. i'm not happy with the economy. but, god, i don't want to have to start over. there's this perception. so that to me is a tricky thing for romney. romney has got to sort of make this case that, hey, we're not going to rip everything out by the roots, right, which is of course what some in his base do want to have happen. but i'm going to create a better recovery, a faster recovery. so i think that that's what this 8% means, right? it means he's got to be more nuanced in that argument where the president can simply sit there and make that same case. do you really want to start over? >
, and that makes it different this time because it's a lot of people still say -- you heard bill clinton, he put it in -- it's almost emblazoned now. >> four years ago, it deid feel different. >> now we are hearing that no one could have done better in job growth and that perception was supposedly different. we had people come in here that were thinking '80 was even worse. >> the new standard. we failed so this is good. >> the one thing that is helping the president is the rebound in home prices and the fact that i think -- because actually consumer sentiment is on the rise in the last couple of months. and i think a lot of that is that people are reading that home prices are getting better, they feel there's a turn in that market. and i think that's playing it, as well. the unemployment rate is still stubbornly high, but people don't feel all that bad and i think that's one of the reasons the stock market is doing well. >> the question is how many people are participating. >> front page article in the journal this morning is that despite the fact that we're sitting at a four year cycle high, we
, secretary clinton and at the white house seems to have ignored very serious threat warnings. ignored attacks. a dozen attacks now we know from the letter that has been sent by congress. and then after the fact, after having ignored those attacks and threats and denying resources our consulate requested, they tried to cover up. very, very serious cover-up. hard to remember, frankly a more serious cover-up. and, i certainly hope that we'll get some focus and attention on this, particularly given we have four dead americans. martha: we have spoken to a friend of, two former navy seals who were lost in that. one of the great ambiguity also about all this that continues to strike me the explanation of what their role was. because in the initial hours and days there was a suggestion that they were provided security what we're learning they were not. they were there on a very separate mission which most likely according to the reports that we're hearing involved trying to keep track of some of the weapons that were let loose africa introduce if i was ousted out of power. why the ambiguity on the se
running around spinning conspiracy theories. for that matter, good economic numbers helped bill clinton in 1996. back then, conservatives and republicans didn't make this kind of stuff up. but what's also insidious here is that the people who collect economic data for our government are really good. they really care about the integrity of their numbers. if there was something wrong here, they would cry to the heavens to say, somebody is manipulating these numbers. >> yeah, but the point is, if somebody was manipulating the numbers, why have high unemployment numbers in the first place? the problem, e.j. -- and i want you to weigh in on this, too, joan, they are now reaching to find a rational for why romney is running. if unemployment is now going down, if you have 30 months of private job creation, if you have bin laden dead, why is romney running? that's the problem they are getting if these numbers are out and they are out and they are valid numbers. >> he's losing rationale, and, you know, he began to lie today on the campaign trail because i think he said, what's happening is that
